From the team behind the successful “Farm” franchise (Victorian Farm, Wartime Farm, Edwardian Farm and Tudor Monastery Farm) comes another slice of “living history.” Here, historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologists Peter Ginn and Tom Pinfold head to France to experience medieval living in an authentic castle that’s been years in the making. As with the other series in the franchise, Castle is an exquisite-looking, captivating glimpse of a simpler past.
